iTunes Editors’ Notes

Not quite brooding, but imbued with atmosphere and mood, the debut from L.A.’s Low vs. Diamond is dramatic, yet tastefully restrained, with its sweeping guitars, accents of pianos and keyboards, and warm, unpretentious vocals.  The collection succeeds right off in giving us a few radio friendly tracks that should have some shelf life without wearing out their welcome. The military, twitchy crunch  of “Killer B,” the lush guitar and Bryan Ferry-ish vocal swells of “Heart Attack” and the introspective demi-ballad, “This Is Your Life,” seem destined for airplay right next to Coldplay or the Doves. Perhaps too big for radio,  “Actions Are Actions” is a huge, emotional outpouring to a longtime friend or relative, with searing guitars lifting lyrics like, “I won’t turn my face and look away/ I still care about you /so desperately lost and you’re hurting us all /you don’t know the cost.” Vocalist Lucas Field has just the right touch with such plainspoken words placed clearly in the final mix; his style and tone are immediately appealing, and you want to hear what he is saying. Low vs. Diamond is a young band with a mature heart and lush vision, qualities which may well portend an interesting and prolific future.

Customer Reviews

This album is worth buying.

I bought this album out of nowhere. Didn't listen to it (I didn't have any audio at the time), didn't read any reviews (except the three on itunes front page). Just thought they looked pretty good. I happened to stumble upon one of my favorite albums. First off, the album is $7.00 (for the rest of April, I think). Honestly, this makes this CD make the listener feel even better, knowing they got an amazing CD for extremely cheap. As for the actual music, this CD is extremely well done. The singer has his own sound and sounds pretty good, which is always a plus. The actual instrumention in the background, like many other bands, does get a little repetitive. That being said, it does do an amazing job in combining a rock sound with an alternative sound, something very few bands can pull of as well as these guys are. Also, the melodies of each song are their own, and almost every time you can start singing along with the chorus before the song even ends. Each song is great, and the only one I thought might be kind of weak would be This Is Your Life, which would get a 3 star rating from me (and it's not even that bad although I could see many people disagreeing). Every other song is 4 star quality or higher. The first two songs are both amazing, and they would give you a pretty good idea of the rest of the album if you aren't sure if you want to buy it. As for me personally, I like Actions Are Actions. It almost reminds me of what is going on in my own life a little bit (although not to the extent that the songs goes to). Which is another thing about this band. Each song has it's own story, it's own theme. I don't normally listen to lyrics in songs, but this CD changed that a little. Heart Attack, Wasted, and everything to the end of the CD is great. It ends quite strongly with I'll Be, which reminded me of The Ocean by The Bravery, but a little different. In conclusion, the CD does suffer a little from repition (what CD doesn't these days?), but it doesn't stop it from being a top notch album. I would suggest buying Low vs. Diamond while it's still $6.99, and you most likely won't be dissapointed.

Amazing Debut

This album is incredible and such a great listen. Hard to pick any favorite tracks but Don't Forget Sister is so sick. You will not be disapointed if you buy this album. You can be the guy or girl who can say I knew about these guys way before they got huge. These guys are going to be one of those bands I'm telling you!!!

Amazing and inspiring

Fantastic debut album. It’s very rare to find an important band these days. World meet LVD, LVD meet World.
